We were talking about this earlier on the China thing . It didn't surprise me that much , and Dylan's own response seem keeping with what I know about him.
Still , I sort of wish he didn't play there .
Since his "comeback" album "Time out of Mind", It is almost as if people are so happy to have him back, that he can do no wrong . Considering what glowing reviews "Modern Time", and "Together Through Life" have received , I was/am disappointed . I just don't think they are as awesome as some many seem to feel ( I wish I did !).
It sort of bothers me that the author seems to only quote those earliest albums . For most of his career, Dylan has NOT been a "protest singer," but has always seemed to have a less precise moral back bone , that informs so much of his music . So though I would not expect he to do some big symbolic act , I believe he should have "thought twice" about the China trip.
A minor bone to pick with the author : The older I get the less I like "With God On Our Side", ESPECIALLY the "Germans" part . The whole thing seems, simplistic, ham handed, and, for a song that is critical of perceived God' s favor , self-righteous . I suppose in the early 60's, this needed being said , but I think it has aged poorly . Dylan was still learning to write , a year later comes "My Back Pages" which is of much deeper waters ...ok, my 2-cents .
